    As if needing to be told. The one-hundred-and-forty-first episode of PolyCast, "Can Always Speculate", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and Lisa "qnl" Bang with returning guest co-host Jonah Falcon; it has a runtime of 59m59s; listeners are encouraged to rate the show on iTunes and follow on Twitter.

    The summary of topics is as follows:

    - 03m13s | News (Part 1 of 2)
    Coverage galore on the offical announcement that the first Civilization V expansion pack, Gods and Kings, is set for release this spring. Through analyses and sleuthing alike, its following aspects are discussed first: religion; espionage (15m02s); diplomacy (19m40s); civilizations (22m34s); buildings (25m06s) and combat (26m44s).
    - 28m47s | Miscellaneous
    Observing CivV leaders' reactions to defeat (recorded for Episode 111); counting down a Top 10 things "Learned About the World" through the game (32m39s; recorded for Episode 129); some continued disbelief that females play Civilization games (35m01s; recorded for Episode 134), and critiquing CivV's difficulty levels in correlation to the Artificial Intelligence (40m44s; recorded for Episode 136).
    - 47m19s | News (Part 2 of 2)
    Considering the stated release timeline for CivV: G&K, and a possible sneak peak of some modified CivV settings to come following an accidental then reversed patch rollout (50m17s).

    - Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
    Citing a classic cartoon's theme song, on one of the regular co-hosts being a guest on the TD Gaming Podcast, and the lesson of forgiveness before permission.

    Recording live before a listening audience every other Saturday, PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production in an ongoing effort to give the Civ community an interactive voice on game strategy; sibling show RevCast focuses on Civilization: Revolution, ModCast on Civ modding and TurnCast on Civ multiplay.
